|A 16J Errington, 1895.|
However looking at the hallmarks there are normal marks for Chester 1895 but one set of makers marks have been over-stamped by another.
Under high magnification and with a hint from another mark (see below) it is possible to read the second set of marks as belonging to Alfred Moss Jacobs & Co (Watch Makers), 18 Cross St, Hatton Garden, London.
The original marks are probably those of Errington.
So it would appear that Errington sold the watch to Jacobs & Co who went as far as disassembling a new watch to over-stamp the makers marks, before selling it on to Curtis & Horsepool who signed it.
